A man accidentally shot himself in the face Tuesday in Burton after a handgun he dropped while trying to open his truck door went off, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.
The man, whose name and age were withheld, shot himself in the jaw and cheek at about 3 p.m. He had wrapped his gun inside his jacket, but it fell out when he reached for his keys, the report said.
The handgun fired when it hit the truck bed, the report said. His condition was not available Wednesday.
